    Durango conditions mid-June?

    As a former Coloradoan currently in exile out of state, I'm headed back in mid-June for some MTB pedaling (finally). I hear the San Juan snowpack is a tad low this year and Hermosa Creek might already be open. Any other wild guesses as to what other trails up high might be open by June 15? I realize June in the Rockies can be a big roll of the dice, but any first hand beta on trail conditions would be most appreciated.

    Thanks for the help.

    Heading over to do Hermosa on Saturday, but reports are muddy but rideable!!! Phil's World in Cortez and Boggy Draw in Dolores though are in amazing shape right now! I would guess that Horse Gulch and Junction Creek stuff in DGO is in fine condition too!

    I would say given this years snowpack(currently at 16% of normal) everything will be rideable.You may encounter a few snowfields,but it's looking pretty bare up high.

    Highest stuff is still a no go. Mid to lower stuff is all good with regional muddiness. Afternoon rains have been really good for the trails.
